Visual and Sound Materials Portal
This page is to share developments relating to the Visual Sound and Materials Portal Demonstrator (VSM Portal), an existing EDINA demonstration portal for searching across multiple sites for images, sounds, films and videos.
The Visual and Sound Materials (VSM) project began in 2005. It created a demonstrator portal as part of the investigations into the value and feasibility of a national portal for both time-based media and image collections dedicated to the needs of the Further and Higher Education communities. The portal has been linked from the Education Image Gallery, Film & Sound Online and NewsFilm Online service pages since 2009.
It is hoped that access to the cross-searched collections will continue to be available in future via Mediahub.
